I think I have gone to more panels than ever before at this year’s Perth Festival. That felt good.
There was a lot to see and most importantly, a lot to learn.
There was this one called the Business of being a Writer and man, there is stuff you don’t really think about when it comes to being a writer. Established authors discussed and answered questions about everything and anything to do with publishing.
I met some familiar faces as well as some new ones. Always good when that happens. We’re all on the same path albeit on different roads, of course, but we’re all generally going in the same direction.
Finding our audience, connecting with the world of writing and marking our place in this world.
If you’ve never been to a writer’s festival, I highly recommend it. No matter where you are in your journey, it is incredibly helpful and nourishing to attend something like that. It motivates you to work harder and gives you an idea of what the future might hold for you.
Now, as Britney would say: I better work bitch. 😂
